Sometimes, you might see an error when installing various Adobe applications, such as products from Suite 5. When this happens, people tend to lose a lot of time and effort by trying to find a fix. Some of them also think that their computer can’t run the latest Adobe products, even though it most certainly can. The easy fix is to download and install the "Adobe Application Manager".
This software is the solution to errors like “Application Manager is needed to update your product” and “Application Manager is needed to start your trial.” If you qualify for a free demo, this application will enable you to realize it.
The application is designed to work on both Windows (from XP to 10) and Mac OS X. As a helper application, AAM is also able to help you install most of Adobe’s products.
Furthermore, the application manages all of your Creative Cloud downloads. In other words, AAM often functions like a download manager that retrieves the application packages from Adobe’s servers.
As such, the software doesn’t need any extra customizations. In fact, there aren’t many options to speak of; it’s designed to work by default.
